going on in washington. rick santorum, one of gop's most outspoken republican leaders and nationally he's raising 2016 speculation. let's get right to it. how do you look at 2016 right now? there's expectation you'll be in the hunt. where is your head now? >> my head now is we've got a lot on our plate. there's so much -- so much as i said during the campaign, this is the most critical election in our country's history and seeing the consequence now here in washington now around the world. we're trying to stay engaged. i started an organization, patriot voices and we got involved in that. we got involved in the treaty on capitol hill, they were trying to pass a u.n. treaty that we felt was an overreach, something that would involve the united nations in the rights of parents and being able to provide was best for their disabled children and as well as other things that we are disconcerning about the u.n. and reach here. i think most people would say about but for our action and what we did, the senate probably would have passed that. we'll stay ingauged on capitol hill there's a lot

coming to the rescue once again, dr. rick santorum's imaginaryium. >> there are some very, very troubling provisions that could open up pandora's box that could directly affect many families in america. imagine the situation if now the state, those who are not the parents of these children, have the determination as to what is in the best interest of the child. >> stephen: that's right. reaffirming protections to the disabled equals the u.n. coming between you and your child. it's hard enough for parents to get the kids to listen now. just wait until everything you say has to go through those translator headsets. ( laughter ). now, now, sure the idea that an international treaty for the disabled would give the u.n. rights to take your kid away sounds farred fetched, butun what else sounds farfetched? anyone listening to rick santorum, and yet, here we are!

firing back at senator rick santorum. it's all about this. opposition to a u.n. treaty. one that a lot of people thought was a no-brainer. it was about the rights of the disabled all over the world. we brought you this story yesterday. senate republicans rejecting this treaty on tuesday despite the fact that one of their own, bob dole, bob dole, a former majority leader, came to the floor in a wheelchair trying to draw support for this treaty. he was being pushed by his wife and made an impassioned plea. senator santorum explained opposition to this treaty in a piece published in "the daily beast." in part he says this. our nation has been been the worldwide leader when it comes to protecting the disabled. we should be telling the u.n. and not the other way around how to ensure dignity and respect for the disabled. effectively saying nobody tells the united states what to do. it sets a very dangerous precedent perhaps for other things. okay. that sounded legitimate until it came out that that's not what the treaty suggests. senator kerry was mincing absolutely no words in saying that r
